Modelling prosocial skills

Game leaders look for opportunities to model prosocial skills, e.g., using manners, taking turns, saying sorry and resolving conflicts in friendly ways. Mimes, scripts and little role-plays are used to show children what standing assertively looks like, what adaptive self-talk sounds like, how to seek help or what ‘brag’ means, for example. Leaders also look for and refer to peers who are using prosocial skills during the game … smiling, having fun and being respectful.
